New Delhi: A Delhi court on Monday sent the son-in-law of a joint commissioner of Delhi Police to one day police custody, after his wife filed an FIR against him for demanding dowry.
Duty Metropolitan Magistrate Preety Parewa sent Arun Singh, the son-in-law of Joint Commissioner (Security) DP Verma to police custody after he was arrested on late Monday night.
The court granted police custody of Singh as sought by police to recover jewelry of the woman from her husband's home.
Singh, meanwhile, moved bail application before the court which would come up for hearing on Tuesday.
Filing the FIR at Hauz Khas police station, Singh's wife Nimisha alleged that she was harassed by her husband and in-laws for dowry.
She said that they got married in June 2012, and it was love marriage. At the time of marriage there was no demand of dowry but they later started demanding dowry from her, she said.
Singh, who works with a MNC in Gurgaon, however, alleged that Nimisha wanted to become a film actress to which he did not agree and thus she filed a false case against him.
He further alleged that his wife went through a breast implant, without informing him.
